Gorillaz - Humility (Official Video)

The music video for the song Humility, lead single of the Gorillaz album The Now Now, was posted to the Gorillaz YouTube channel on the 21st of May, 2018.


The video starts with shots of 2-D roller-skating around Venice Beach and Jack Black playing a guitar. Noodle is then seen playing chess against Remi Kabaka Jr.. Ace, who replaced Murdoc while he was in jail, is then seen watching two men play basketball. When the ball lands in Ace's hand, he takes out a pocket knife and stabs it. After this, various video clips of local residents of Venice Beach are shown. Near the end of the video, Russel is seen standing on the side of the boardwalk. Russel then trips 2-D as he skates towards him. 2-D falls, and when he gets back up, his white eyes turn black. He begins to skate away again, only to fall on his face.
